Huawei Mate 40 Pro | Unboxing, Tour & Camera Test

Unboxing the Huawei Mate 40 Pro, plus a full tour of the EMUI 11 software, testing out the quad lens camera tech, and checking out the Kirin 9000 performance with some gaming action.

This hands-on review shows off Huawei's 5x telephoto zoom and new HDR video smarts, making the P40 Pro optics even more powerful. The Mate 40 Pro has to be one of the best camera phones of 2020, a serious rival vs the Samsung S20 and iPhone 12 Pro.

While it's not full fat Android, merely open source, you do at least get the latest Emotion UI 11. This boasts fresh features like an 'eyes on display', and you can see some of the other highlights in my EMUI 11 tips.

Power isn't a problem, with that new Kirin 9000 chipset offering strong returns. The Mate 40 Pro also packs 8GB RAM and 256GB storage (UFS 3.1), expandable via nano-memory card. Overall, very strong specs.

Battery life should also be good thanks to the 4400mAh cell, with 66W SuperCharge tech to get you filled up again in well under an hour.

So are you tempted by this Huawei phone? Let me know your first thoughts down below!

Just heard the UK price for the Mate 40 Pro is £1099 (a little more than hoped!) and it goes on sale from November 13th - so not long to wait at least...

I like that you have this tour whenever you unbox a tech. Unlike those big so called tech YouTuber just unbox and talk for 8 minutes and that's it.
